From last Sunday"s American: JOSHUA NEACE and his wife, an aged couple, and a young nephew ALEX FARLER and his wife dwell together on a farm 20 miles east of Jackson in this county. Farler does most of the work as his uncle is 72 years old. Last Monday night they were the victim of the cruelest and boldest robbery that has occurred in the county in a long time. A Ö band visited them and the two men were hanged by the neck to a tree until they told where their money was. They were robbed of about $80 after being terribly mistreated.
